Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) April 7, 2009
The American Medical College of Homeopathy based in Phoenix is making it easy for students seeking a career path in "green" medicine to take classes online. The college announced it will now hold real-time online sessions for its Homeopathic Practitioner Certificate Program beginning May 2009.
With its new online program, students can access the class across the country and interact with classmates and instructors using VOIP technology. A dedicated class assistant will facilitate the communication between online students and the instructor and all classes will be videotaped for future reference.
"We decided to adopt an online program because of the numerous benefits for our students," said Dr. Todd Rowe, president. "There are other homeopathic online programs available, but the American Medical College of Homeopathy has the only real-time program that enables students to sit in on the class without physically being there. Students can reduce stress, travel time and can now participate in a national networked homeopathic community from anywhere in North America. This is especially helpful for our students who have other professions, but are looking for a new direction."
Alumni Reza Sharifi completed the Certificate Program in 2006 and practices homeopathy part-time. "I was retiring from my engineering job and I needed to do something that would help others as well as keep me useful. I tried different paths until this program came about. The program allowed me to work full-time and be able to go to school and learn something completely different than what I was used to. It has opened my heart and eyes much more and enabled me to see health and healing from a totally different perspective."
The Certificate Program is fully accredited by the Council on Homeopathic Education, lasts three years and prepares students for homeopathic licensure in the state of Arizona. Throughout the program, students will learn to practice a form of medicine that is holistic, natural, gentle, inexpensive and curative of chronic disease. The cost of the program is $4,300/year campus-based and $4,600/year online. Students may also enroll after the program start date.
